Acid Rain (A song by me)

Poetry By: ThepureLight7
Song lyrics



A song written by me for part of my in-progress rock-opera, "There Is No Part 2, Part 1," entitled "Acid Rain."

The plot of the opera is about a young man who falls into an unrequited love with a girl named Destiny. In his attempt to win Destiny's affections, he joins as lead singer of a small cover band named The Unknown Entity. As he comes to grips with his emotion and starts to let it out into his music and songwriting, the band becomes a sensation in the underground scene. Eventually, the band is offered a recording contract from a major representative, and our hero is forced to make a decision between his band and the fame associated and a possible life with Destiny.

[[SPOILER ALERT!!!]] The following song is the last song in the opera, after the main character has chosen to stay with his band and become a well-known musician. He starts to look back on everything that happened with Destiny, and is telling himself that he can pull through it and come on top in the end. Whether he believes it or not is up to interpretation (that is, until the sequel).

I am trapped by the acid rain

I've been trying

Again and again

To leave the pain

___________________________________________

So I'm going

To a place

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

___________________________________________

[To a place where the water is so clear

A place that my heart holds so dear

You'd scream in joy if you could hear

That roaring waterfall of cheer]

___________________________________________

[So I am leaving the acid rain

Leaving the suffering

This wickedly awful plague

That's held me for

So long, so long, so long, so long, so long...]

___________________________________________

I am leaving that ocean of sorrow

That sea of hopelessness

I'm starting my life fresh

It's a new day tomorrow

___________________________________________

Now I'm going

To a place

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

___________________________________________

(Repeat chorus)

___________________________________________

(Magical guitar solo of awesomeness)

___________________________________________

Now I've built

A boat of rising hope

To cross this sea of pain

I'm sailing straight through

The acid rain

___________________________________________

Now I'm going

To a place

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

___________________________________________

(Repeat chorus)

___________________________________________

(Repeat 'So long' and fade out)
